September 16, 2021 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

It’s the start of a brand-new academic year at the University of the Philippines (UP), and it’s back to a semester of remote teaching and learning for a majority of UP students and faculty.

Of course, with the new academic year come new possibilities, new opportunities to learn, and new friendships to be made, and AY 2021-2022 is no exception. To welcome its new first-year students and to welcome back its continuing students, the University of the Philippines will hold a System-wide assembly tomorrow, September 16, at 10:00 a.m.

New and returning UP students will be officially greeted by UP President Danilo L. Concepcion, Student Regent Renee Louise Co, Vice President for Academic Affairs Ma. Cynthia Rose Bautista, and Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs Richard Philip Gonzalo. Students from all across the UP System will give video messages of inspiration plus lessons on how they survived the past year of remote learning amid community quarantines. There will also be musical performances by UP performing groups such as the Conchords.

The UP System Welcome Assembly will be live-streamed via and TVUP’s YouTube channel. All UP students from Baguio to Mindanao are invited to attend.
